Take advantage of the wealth of knowledge and practical advice in our management courses. Excel as a manager, reach your goals faster, and reduce the stress in your worklife.
You can be a high-caliber manager. Our courses offer material that's missing from graduate level university offerings, which focus on academics rather than the real world. Whether you have an advanced degree or not, you still need the knowledge in these courses to be a high-caliber manager.
You could learn on the job, but that takes time and is rife with career danger. If you're really lucky, you have an experienced mentor who is taking the time to teach you these things. And if you are such a person then probably our courses aren't going to help all that much because our course material has the same source. That source being high-caliber managers who have knowledge and understanding that most managers never acquire. But if you don't have such a mentor, then our management courses are exactly what you do need. They will give you that extra edge that others competing with you will wish they had, when they see you shoot on past them in career advancement and accomplishment.
Invest in you, for high return on your investment of time and money. These courses provide a very high ROI by showing you how to improve the skills you need to play in the management game. And not just to win, but to enjoy being a manager. And a good one, at that.
Instead of using your resources to struggle your way through the kinds of problems these courses address, you can quickly deal with matters and move on to things that provide other benefits. For example, being able to hold effective meetings rather than being held hostage by meetings that consume your time but provide little in return.Or enjoying credibility with former peers who now work for you, so that your team works cohesively toward your goals intead of working against you.
Have you noticed any high performers in the ranks above you where you work? Do they seem to possess the ability to solve problems? We have a problem-solving course. Do they seem to turn mundane projects into rain-makers? We have a course on managing projects for maximum profits. Are these stars in your company constantly forgetting things, or does it seem like they never forget? We have a memory maximization course.
All of these courses provide a domino effect of benefits. Why not maximize your benefits, and get several courses?
We have subject matter experts on these topics. So, we can confidently and proudly offer these courses knowing they will beneft anyone who buys one.
The particular selection here is designed to address what we see as the most commonly overlooked management skill areas. Some people graduate on the honor roll, yet fail as managersbecause they lack these very skills. Take these courses, and you won't lack these skills. You will have mastered them.
The courses pertain to subjects where aperson can realistically control and improve, and thus use that managment-related skill advantageously. If you look through the course offerings, you'll notice these are areas where you probably know someone for whom things have not gone well. Why not prepare yourself, so things do go well for you in similar circumstances?
For example, most people simply cannot give a good presentation. When's the last time you were in the audience when a coworker gave a scintillating presentation that really connected people? The typical answer is, "Never." But your presentation does not have to be bad. Our course will show you how to plan, prepare, and deliver a presentation so well that people will sincerely thank you for giving it. In your work, this ability will give you additional stature and opportunity. In other activities, it's also very valuable.
Or consider our information and communications course. It's normal for people to miscommunicate. And you know how that turns out. Why not learn some proven techniques for eliminating miscommunication? Don't you want to ensure you're understood, not misunderstood?
Our other courses similarly provide you with a management skills edge you will probably not get in any classroom. But you can get it here.
Many people learn management skills by trial and error, and it's the error part that can be especially brutal to your career and your financial security.Latent learning (figuring out what you did wrong, instead of not making the error in the first place) doesn't help you with problems until after you've already had to suffer through them. This approach is the classic closing the barn door after the horse gets out.
For example, you may go through a particular communication problem and after all the fallout is cleaned up you say, "I'll never let that happen again!" The question we have for you is, "Why did you let it happen the first time?" Take our communications course, and you won't. Similarly, our other courses can save you that "learn by fire" experience that just leaves you burned.
Why put yourself through that? Why not be prepared, instead?
You don't have to go through pain and misery to learn. Our management skills courses show you what you need to know so you can handle it when the time comes.
